The first evening of the 40th Festival in the Park starts with Jimmy on Anything, (the opening band for Mighty Brothers) from 4-6 p.m., Friday, July 14, in the Watering Hole at Spearfish Canyon Park. (scroll down for more about JOA and video)

ADMISSION: This is The Matthews’ fundraising night. Therefore, admission to this event is by the purchase of a $5 wristband at the entrance of the park, or at the entrance of the Watering Hole. 

James Goddard AKA “Jimmy on Anything” originated in Bloomington, IN, but now resides in Fresno, CA.

Inspired by old blues and soul musicians such as Curtis Mayfield and Muddy Waters, Jimmy puts a new twist on old themes that may sound all his own. Labeled as a “Neo-soul” solo act, Jimmy on Anything explores ANY topic through music and seeks to connect to people on the common ground we all navigate called emotion.
